So now the animated camera, and let me show you my…final result, because I've spent additional time tweaking all the curves.…In fact, you can see I have quite a few more keyframes here.…Now, notice that the keyframes are not lined up, so they're much more chaotic.…And also the shaking extends further in the timeline.…Let me play it back though. There it is.…Another thing that happens here is the camera backs up slightly…at the end; it goes forward, it shakes, and it backs…up a tiny bit, in terms of backing up along the z-axis.…
Let's look at this larger.…Now one trick is to simply press the tilde key to maximize that window.…We can hit space bar to play it back.…There we go.…I'll hit the tilde again to go out…of that, and re-arrange my windows once again.…Now I can move on to the very final step.…And that is to add some film grain or video grain.…
And also create a artificial flair. I want to make one new composite.…One last new one here.…And rename that LensGrain.…It's going to be a lens flare and some green.…
